    Products are a curlies best friend. And if you're straightening your hair all the time, chances are you're using silicones to prevent it from damage. That can make things difficult when styling it curly. Using gel very thoroughly throughout your hair can prevent the poof. And not touching it. That was the hardest part for me, not being able to run my fingers through my hair.

    On those days when I can't get my curls to act right. I clip or pin my curly doo up in a curly puff. I always keep a lot of hair candy (hair accessories) around to accent with. Throw on a pair of cute earrings and your good to go. As a matter of fact I'm wearing my hair like that now.
